Night Shades ? Who wins?

The question is : Up, down or doesn't matter when traveling? We have night shades in our TH. My DW said the dealer told her that they should be always in the down position when traveling. I don't see where it matters.

What's your thoughts on this?

I always keep nightshades down except when camping during the day. It helps decrease sunfade on the interior.

The main reason I think is to reduce the tension on the strings and keep them from sliding down crooked.

I don't have white leather. I have greenish grayish colored cloth recliners and a beige cloth sofa as well as grey/silver trim.

If you have the longish, ceiling to floor, garden style windows, pull the shades up. When they're down and flopping back and forth while traveling, they'll cut through the cords. The shorter blinds do not suffer this malady.

White leather (man made, simulated, artificial) fades to "cracked"

I travel with shades down to keep trailer cooler in summer.

DW wins always even if she is incorrect. Haven't you learned by now that the inside of any domicile is her domain!

All down while travelling and parked at home.
When camping, all open except for the bedroom ones that stay closed.
